Thank you @Aaliaa for starting this thread, and giving us a place to share our love for masks๐Ÿ’—

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks @lmaster; it was. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi Wow!!! Great job on your progress! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks @Samtian. It feels nice to get it down to something I can keep count with my fingers and toes. Hahaha! Now on to whittling down the bath gels and body lotions. It's always something!!! Sooo, how do you feel about yams? Are they in the same camp as avocaDOs for you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi They definitely are lol. YUCK! We used to work with them here in our plant. The poor people would always walk out looking just like them lol. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Oh how exciting to have decreased your stash significantly, @itsfi! And even more so to have a few new ones on the way to try. The yam variety of this line sounds especially delightful ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Earthy scents are always welcome in my book!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, I think you'd like the earthy scent on this one. It's not earthy in the herbaceous or medicinal sense that one might expect of a sheet mask. Likening it to plants or gardening is what my nose thinks of when I take in the scent on the masks from this range. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  Oh, this one sounds wonderful! I actually only bought the milky ones first, then after that I decided I may as well buy them all. Haha ๐Ÿ˜† 


Great job getting through your masks! I've been pretty slack about masking, so you've given me some motivation! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Ahhh!!! ๐Ÿ’ก You're smart @Shosh85! I will take a cue from you and first go for the milky / creamy ones from new sheet masks lines. Adding to my notes. . . ๐Ÿ“”

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi   Thanks for the recommendation.  Iโ€™ll have to take a look for this.  I WAS on a no buy but decided instead to have a mask culling the other night and gave more than 150 of my masks away.  Cleaning my moms home out has encouraged me to simplify and purge my own excess so my kids arenโ€™t left cleaning my hoard one day.  
Thereโ€™s now room to buy the more highly recommended items without wondering when Iโ€™ll ever get around to them. mini victory.  

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@heartsmyface oh I so hear you on this. My Mom has been periodically shipping boxes of things to me that she thinks I might want/need while she works on thinning out her stuff, for that very reason. And yet, there  is still so, so much. I helped clean out my grandmaโ€™s home years ago and appreciated just how little she had held on to. You are wise to begin simplifying!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Hurrah for mini victories @heartsmyface

A mask culling party?! You always have the best ideas, hearts! ๐Ÿค— I'm really aiming to not have a pile of masks like before but if I do, I'm going to throw a mask culling party! That sounds fabulous!! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi I'm so glad you tagged me in this!  I don't know why but Innisfree has been a brand that I've never really gravitated towards, nothing big and flashy about it to grab my attention maybe?  My skin is so dry with allergy season (I can't help but wipe away around my eyes when they're watery) and wearing cloth masks whenever I'm in to work.  I'm totally one of the people who 'should' be on a mask no buy... but we're just gonna accept reality and call it a low buy.  

Big time congrats on getting through your stash.  I'm super impressed and motivated when I hear about everyone succeeding in working through masks! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Awww, that's so kind of you to say @missjeanie! The sentiments are mutual. I'm super impressed with how committed you have been to working through your packs of 10. I ordered a few multi-packs this go round, one new 5 sheet mask pack and a 10-pack of a mask I really like. I'm contemplating a new system / approach to using my sheet masks. Once they all get here and I figure out an initial plan, I may need to pick your brain about how you stay focused. 


I'm so sorry to hear about your allergies - they wreak havoc on everything, especially the skin around the eyes. And then with mask wearing, ugh! Are you finding that steam eye masks or under eye gel masks help a little? 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

lol... it's cute that you think I'm focused on my masks... I feel anything but!  @itsfi I'm so impressed with how you and several other have whittled down their stashes... I keep trying to tell myself that if I can remove the suitcase of masks (as funny as it is) It'll make the floor in my spare room much more tidy!  

I have tried using some eye gels for the allergy ridden peepers, but I find I'm in a bit of a cycle right now where each time I leave the house for the grand out of doors I end up trying to play recovery the next few days.  It's gonna be time to pull out the big guns and not worry about Milia for a bit I think. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I've seen your empties posts @missjeanie; you're definitely committed to your downsizing your mask stash!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ   

You'll get through all the ones in your suitcase; baby steps.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Last nightโ€™s masking was truly Vivid and otherworldly ๐Ÿ‘พ



Scrolling through my mask album, I realized this re:p Bio Fresh Mask was hiding out somewhere. I was elated to find it, as it is indeed a gentle, soothing mask that feels like a hydrating/clay hybrid. It never tightens, but looks and feels like other clay masks Iโ€™ve tried. It is flecked with real herbs and is always a sensory treat. I donโ€™t notice a huge difference in my skin afterwards, but it is enjoyable to wear for 20-30 minutes.


The Pacifica Cosmic Beauty Dose found its way to me from the lovely @lmaster (thank you lovely lady ๐Ÿค—). Besides the mesmerizing holo packaging, the mask itself was printed with vivid purple leaves, with heart cut-outs for the eyes ๐Ÿ˜



The fit was unexpectedly good; Iโ€™ve used other masks from this brand which have been very ill-fitting. The scent, hmmm. I did a โ€˜what does this remind you of?โ€™ test with my family, as I thought it has an earthy creamsicle-like scent. My husband said it reminded him of Poison, which I could detect after he mentioned it. The serum was clear and watery, with a bit remaining to pat-pat onto my cheeks. After removing, I was happy  with the results. Too bad I used an oil serum which completely obliterated the balancing results๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ


Ingredients: (Turmeric, ginger and ginseng, yum!)



The last out-of-this world mask I used was the Lip Bubble Choosy Mask. This is the last of the package @heartsmyface sent me and it has always been fun to use. It is a milky white gel-serum that begins foaming slowly after application. One thing I appreciate about it is that it doesnโ€™t go crazy; it is a slow, gentle bubbling, that at first feels funny, and always makes me smile. Thank you for the๐Ÿ’— medicine, hearts!!!




@Aaliaa, thank you for this challenge. You are greatly missed and appreciated! You did so much to put this thread into action. I hope you are doing well and know that you helped spur my love for masking ๐Ÿฅฐ


Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe @I love bubble masks and how they tickle.  I find them slightly more appropriate for oilier skin but enjoy the novelty of them.  Iโ€™m running low on a lot of Japanese favorites.  Hopefully the borders open up by fall cause thereโ€™s an ever growing list.  

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

I would think by fall time things are pretty much back to normal, @heartsmyface. I canโ€™t imagine the length of your list by now! 

I love wash-off bubbling/foaming masks, so these were really such a treat๐Ÿ˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

The bubbling lip mask looks like so much fun @eshoe !  While I'm not a big pot lover the packaging and printed leaves on the Pacifica are so bright and shiny they make me smile! Glad the fit was a win too, it can be such a good feeling when a mask just fits and lays nicely. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

At first glance I thought you meant โ€˜pot loverโ€™ as in masks in pots, @missjeanie, ha! I totally get it, and I think it would be a fun mask to try whether or not you love it. For those who do, itโ€™s kind of a must ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

lol @eshoe I do love some masks in pots.... lol. I'm still trying to decide if CBD oil in beauty products is for my skin.  I've only tried out a few things so I'm still on the fence.
